  17. Donna Lyon Says:

    I am sooooo confused!! I crocheted rounds 1-28 and fasted off. Then it says Round 14 back – Do I do rounds 1-13 again and then round 14 – 28 for the back and right shoulder? Then there is round 26 for the left shoulder – where is this crocheted? Then round 14 (left front) where is this started from?

    Please email me at dl663@aol.com.

    Thanks for your help.

  18. Donna Lyon Says:

  25. jessica Says:

    Do you have a pattern for a cowboy hat for an older baby? Like 12 months? These are all so cute!

  26. Amy Says:

    Do you have the cowboy hat available for free?


  27. I don’t t this time, but I sent you an email.

  28. Michelle Says:

    I am very confused :( I’m pretty new to crocheting still and I want to make this so bad for my nephew.. I did Rnds 1-28, fastened off .. I have no idea what to do next :( I’m not even sure if I did it right.. If you could help me, it would be greatly appreciated.


  29. I will try…..I’m guessing that you are starting on the back:
    Rnd. 14: (Back) following color scheme of Right Front, skip next 5 sc, attach yarn in next sc, ch 1, dec sc over first 2 sc, sc in next 16 sc, dec sc over next 2 sc, ch 1, turn. 18 sc
    With this….go back to rnd. 13….. count 5 stitches from where you left off (this will make the armhole), attach yarn in the next sc, make a ch1, then work a decrease (work 2 sc into one), then sc in next 16 sc, then work another decrease, ch 1 and turn.
    Follow the rest of the directions for the back……
    This is done this way, so it can be made in one piece…..
    Please feel free to email me at cobblerscabin@gmail.com if you have any other questions or need a little more clarification.
    Carol

    Rnds. 15-25: following color scheme of Right Front, repeat rnd. 6. 18 sc

  30. carleen Says:

    Really cute and creative…I would also like to find out about info re: the cowgirl hat..

  31. Shirley Says:

    I am not able to download the vest pattern. Says its expired. Help. I’d really like to make this one. Shirley


  32. I sent you an email. I’ll have to find out what’s wrong and get it fixed!

  33. Florence Says:

    The vest is sooo cute ! How can I enlarge it to 9 months ?


  34. I used Bernat Satin and Caron Simply Soft which are very light #4 yarns……If you use Red Heart Super Saver or Bernat Super Value with an I hook…….it should work out for you. You also might try using hdc instead of sc if the yarn and hook size alone don’t do it for you.

  35. Jayne Says:

    My grand daughter wants to be a cow girl for halloween this year and I love this vest. she is a size 12…think if I double the pattern stitches, that would work?


  36. It might…..you may want to double the number or rows also……I think if you work each row twice, that will keep the armholes and front opening in correct proportion. An I hook may also help to increase the size.

  37. Chrissy H. Says:

  39. LeAnne Cain Says:

  40. LeAnne Cain Says:

  41. Leanne: Thank you so much for your interest. I have this set available in larger sizes, although it’s not free. The price for this is $3.00 and includes hat, chaps and vest. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/big-buckaroo
